Looking up the Wentworth Trail
Route: Wentworth Trail
The forecast was for a mostly sunny day. Since there had been snow up north, I decided to stay local and take advantage of the good weather.
Arriving at the trailhead, I was a bit perturbed to see solid clouds moving overhead - mostly sunny, huh?
The first portion of the trail was a bit wet from the recent rainfall, however the balance of the ascent was somewhat dry. Upon clearing the top of the ascent and heading into the flatter portions of the trail, there were pockets of snow, pooled water, and ice. As I was crossing through this portion of the trail, it started snowing!
The views from the summit, despite the clouds, were still strong - the Sandwich Dome, Mt. Whiteface, and Mt. Passaconaway were all white.
The descent wasn't really noteworthy - though I was able to clean up a few blowdowns.
